Recent warning issued for London suggest a”very high”  warning for air pollution.

Are we due to see people in the UK wearing anti-pollution face masks? If that is going to be the case make sure you make it look good.

We hear a lot about all the “risks” we face as motorcyclists but have you ever considered we are more prone to getting Asthma. Asthma is a long term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.

We find ourselves between idling buses and cars where exhaust fumes are very concentrated. We are often stationery or slow moving so every breath keeps the fumes in our helmets for longer than say a pedestrian or cyclist.
